thai EX PM-Yingluck-ShinawatraBangkok:¬†Former Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra authorised her lawyer, Norawit Laleang, to petition the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) against its resolution to dismiss Yingluck’s request to include eight additional witnesses.

According to the defence lawyer, the refusal to allow eight witnesses to testify may result in unfairness in Yingluck’s defence.¬†The lawyer insisted that the petition was not meant to delay the case connected to a controversial rice-pledging scheme.

The inspection committee appointed by the Thai military junta revealed that the committee found some rice was missing while there was massive deterioration in quality. The inspection committee said it was committed to completing its inspections by the end of this month and providing a summary on its findings at each granary nationwide.
